FastFAQs for Block IP Addresses
1. How does it work?
If an IP on the list in the module admin hits your site, the module stops the visitor from going any further and either exits with a blank screen or puts up an optional custom message (HTML or text) then exits. You create the message but there is an example in the module configuration.
2. Does it slow down my store?

When this module is active it checks the module config every time a page is loaded. If you add too many IP addresses into the module then yes, it could possibly slow down your store.

However, this module is made for temporary IP blocking and the list should always be kept short (a few dozen at the most.) If it gets too big, contact your host so they can add the IPs to a bad IP list that's on the server level rather than the store level.

3. How do I get my license?

The license is free, you just add this to your cart and go through the checkout process. You won't be asked to pay anything and then when you're finished an email will go out to you with your license code.
